Only seems to want to give out prescriptions once a month so that you have to come in, and he can bill your insurance. Terrible inter-physician communication and if you need any part of your record for another doctor, prepare to wait weeks for it.
Was at the office for over two hours for an appointment that was actually less than 20 minutes. The staff was nice and helpful but the wait was frustrating. Overall the visit was worth it.
Dr. Fernandez is very congenial and extremely competent. At the same time he clearly cares about his patients. I would highly recommend!
Terrible experience here. Never saw the same person. The PA and the dr kept changing my prescriptions and dose seemingly only to make it necessary for me to keep coming back every few weeks. Wait time was always TERRIBLE! I waited over an hour and a half for my last appointment there AND in the process my parking meter expired and my car was booted in their parking lot. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY... go to literally ANYONE ELSE!
Personal atentos, se siente mucha tranquilidad en la oficina y el proceso de información es rápido. El Dr. se toma su tiempo con el paciente, aunque habla lo esencial.
Very nice and comforting for guy.
He's indifferent and hard to talk to, didn't put in any effort to get to know me, see what my issues were, barely asked any questions. I left his office feeling way worse both times I visited.
I've been to two in-person appointments and am now waiting for my one phone appointment. My two in-person appointments took approximately 10 minutes each. Considering this was the first time I'd ever been to a psychiatrist, I was hoping for something a little more thorough. One associate asked me a few basic questions, but Dr. Lino Fernandez spent no time at all trying to get to know me. He prescribed me medication with close to no explanation or reassurance and did not give me time to ask any questions before he put pen to pad. The phone appointment has been even more disappointing. An hour after my scheduled appointment time, I was forced to call in an reschedule after they failed to contact me. They are now an hour late for the rescheduled time. I will never go to this doctor again, and I would not recommend his practice to anyone. Find someone, anyone better.
I have had three sessions with Dr. Fernandez so far and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a psychiatrist in the area. There is usually a short wait time. My only complaint would be that the check in area has a sliding window you have to knock on in order to sign in. It's a bit awkward and makes the process a impersonal. Other than that, I highly recommend not only the doctor but the PA is AMAZING. She's very personalble and makes you feel very comfortable.
Great and very comprehensive!
the worst ever, called his office 10 times for a 2 weeks for them to send the files for my lawyer they'd always say they'll call back but they never do.
Great doctor and nice office. Was first seen by the nurse and then transfered over to the doctor. Overall a nice experience.
This was my first visit at this office. I was very impressed with the thorough initial visit. The PA was nice and attentive, and willing to help me understand my symptoms. Her office was clean and cozy, with a sound machine so no one else could hear us. Then I was transferred to the doctor, who was kind and knowledgeable. Overall a great visit, planning on returning.
It took 45 minutes to finally be seen and the room they took me into was filthy with hair all over the floor. I was kind of grossed out. I did speak to the doctor and someone else and that was helpful, but overall it 50/50. I may go back, but i'm going to keep looking for another doctor in the meantime just in case.
Excellent Pyschiatrist and very knowledgeable.
Kind doctor, though a bit difficult to understand due to his strong accent. It wasn't until an hour after my appointment that I finally saw him. Will be coming back.
His Staff is kind. Wait can be terrible, but it always is with psychs
He explained in detail everything I needed to know, extremely helpful. He has also very kind and made me feel comfortable on my very first visit to a psychiatrist. It felt like I was taking to a good friend.
He is a great doctor,very proffesional
Es extremadamente professional y me dio el alien to que necesitaba
Very very knowledgeable and willing to explain everything going on. Super friendly. Highly recommend
Dr. Fernandez is great. Very knowledgeable, listened to my concerns patiently, and answered all my questions in a way I could understand. Staff was great and efficient. Office was clean and nice.
Very nice office, will return
I love their new staff members. And I love that management is always looking to give us patients the best experience possible. I like the doctor very much as well.
The P.A. Was very knowledgeable and Dr. Fernandez very caring and attentively listened to my concerns. The wait time was a bit too long
Good but apparently they didn't know about it, lucky they were running late and still there
Very kind and caring man who really listened.
Really good doctor and generally a very pleasant individual to talk to.
My first office visit I waited from 3pm to 5pm. They had to reschedule me the first time. The insurance wasn't verified prior to the visit and the charge me a high amount . They explaines its my out of network deductible. But even then my charge has never been so much. I just found out they charged for psychiatric diagnostic evaluation with medical services everytime to get more bang for their buck. My previous doctor only charged my doctor visit. I didn't request any evaluation. I hate hidden fees causing me to pay 4x the amount I would ever pay.
I really liked this doctor.
Creo poder dormir
The secretary was extremely rude. I have been in mental health offices before, and due to privacy there usually was not a sign in sheet. There was no sound at all and I was not sure if this was a solo practice or an office staff was there. So I took a seat. ~15 minutes later another client came in. When I told the secretary that I had been waiting there she did not believe me as I had not signed in. She made me wait until after the following appointment and after a meeting with a rep. I waited about one hour and 20 minutes.
CRAZY I WAITED SOOO LONG FOR THEM TO TREAT ME LIKE GARBAGE. Thanks but NEVER AGAIN
Very Proffesional in the medical field and very cultural persom.
The office staff is kind and courteous. Dr. Fernandez was very professional.
I've been coming to this doctor for a lot of months now. Have always liked it here. They changed their front desk people a few months ago, huge improvement! Overall nice office :)
Great doctor but I am not coming back due to the extremely unprofessional staff. I've gone in three times at this point and have never had a good experience with them. I've had to wait hours while they took patients with appointments that were after me, even the time I came in and was clearly in distress. They close the window to the waiting room and make it clear that you are an inconvenience on them. Recently I called asking a question that needed to be answered as soon as possible and was assured I would get a call back by the end of the day, but of course that call never came so I am currently looking for a new doctor. Overall I'm upset that I have to do this because the psychiatrist is fantastic and has already helped me a lot but unfortunately I cannot handle the administrative staff.
He's very courteous and professional, a little bit of language barrier but in Miami that's something I'm used to, so no problems.
Very unprofessional. Didn't have any of my paperwork. Tiny office with terrible parking. Waited close to an hour and only met with the psychiatrist for less than 2 minutes. Didn't answer any of my questions.
Doctor Fernandez was knowledgeable, friendly, and very open to asking new questions for a new patient. His office was comfortable and the staff was willing to work with my schedule. I enjoyed speaking with him, and will be back.
As always, the experience with Dr. Fernandez is unique. I'm extremely greatful for be able to have my life back. Dr. Fernandez is a blessing!!!!
Took the time to answer all my questions. Secretaries were nice.
We are English only speakers so it was a little had to express our situation. But we will return and were satisfied with the entire experience!
This office is awesome! They helped me with my insurance issues quickly so that I could get my medication right away.
The staff was polite and speedy. The gentleman who performed my intake interview was very personable and warm, and I felt comfortable being open with him. Dr. Fernandez also exuded a warm personality and I was put at ease by his manner of speaking and knowledge. I definitely intend to see him again and make my visits a regular occurrence.
Dr Lino isn't the worst but he certainly isn't the best. You get a sense that he just treats patients to bill their insurance and make money. I went to him for a few months and did not feel like I got the guidance I needed. His front office rep Marvin is not professional and comes off rude. They are very strict with their cancellations and will charge you a fee no matter what, even if you have a valid excuse.
Dr. Fernandez is a pleasure, however his reception staff is rude and incredibly unhelpful - there have been several instances wherein I've asked them for assistance and I'm given a "not my problem" attitude. They lack the understanding and care that is crucial for a mental health clinic.
Very knowledgable about meds. Better if you speak spanish though
Dr Fernandez was very professional, caring and understanding. The social worker conducted an extensive interview before been seen by the doctor, he was very friendly and put me at ease. I already scheduled my follow up, the doctor was very knowledgeable and carefully explained my options.
Very quick and easy interaction! Will be returning!!
Great, very helpful. Super nice staff and doctor.
I filled out the doctors forms on zocdoc but had to do it at the office again. The wait time was 35 minutes. The doctor was very nice and listened well. I would reccomend him.
Would recommend without reservations
Nice guy, but there was a language barrier at this practice. There were employees I spoke to that didn't speak english at all, and had to go get someone who did. Plus, despite being conversational in Spanish, I had a hard time understanding him, and couldn't tell whether I was being heard. Despite being in the office for over an hour, I only spent a few minutes with him each visit. Most of the time was spent with his wife who does a recap before you speak to Dr. Fernandez. He prescribed me medication that didn't work.
Comforting, peaceful, and concise. You cannot ask for more.
Every time i go there I need to wait over 30 minutes to be seen. It is extremely annoying especially on days when you are short on time. Today's experience was even worse as the AC wasn't working in the waiting room.
He really listened to my situation and provided great feedback, he also took his time to explain to me his treatment recommendation. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Excelente muy contenta con los resultados
Dr. Fernandez is an excellent and caring doctor, who actually likes to educate his patients on why he recommends the treatment that he does. He also truly considers what you have to say and how you feel. It's easy to tell that he has the best of intentions at heart. Excellent doctor, I highly recommend him.
The visit was as usual; Right to the point and very much pleasant. The staff is very nice to deal with and the Dr. is an A+. I would not change it for the world, I travel almost two hours to make this visit and I do not mind it at ALL- it is worth it!!!!! Thank you Dr. Fernandez and staff, you guys are the best!!!
Todo estuvo bien gracias
Dr Lino Fernandez is excellent. He was able to quickly and effectively treat my symptoms and he is very understanding and personable, unlike some psychiatrists. With his wife who is a psychologist, they make for a quick and complete office visit each time. Also, his office staff is efficient and helpful. Highly recommend!!
Worst Doctor I have ever seen do not go to this office. Unorganized and rude!
Great doctor, Highly recommend.
Dr. Lino was very informative and very patient. He did not rush to a diagnosis and made me feel comfortable during our visit. I would recommend Dr. Lino especially for anyone who has had bad experiences with psychiatrists in the past. He was great.
The office staff was professional and friendly. Dr. Fernandez was great. My wait time was likely due to it being my first appointment. I had to fill out documents similar to the ones I had already completed on zocdoc.com.
He is very thorough and professional and asked great questions to arrive at a proper diagnosis.
I like Dr. Fernandez a lot, but the people working in his office are incompetent. There was 10 people in the waiting room, and everyone was complaining about the wait being past their appointment time. They shouldn't schedule more people than they can handle. I waited for 40 minutes past my appointment time and was unhappy!
I was satisfied , but the Waiting was to much!! The doctor is very professional.
Dr. Fernandez did not rush to a specific diagnosis in my case - which I'm very thankful for. He explains things very thoroughly and is more concerned with getting the diagnosis and treatment right than getting it right away.
Excelente doctor y persona quede muy satisfecha con la consulta lo recomendaría 100%
Lovely !! Thank you so much
Warm atmosphere, professional, left feeling comfortable.
The wait was worth it. They really took the time to listen to me and make me feel comfortable. I will be returning to Dr. Fernandez.
Each time I have visited Mr. Fernandez I have gotten right in to see him. His staff is very friendly and I always get a helpful reminder call.
By far the best psychiatrist i ever met. Loved him! Very encouraging and understanding. I could tell he is very knowledgable and he made me feel so comfortable. Really makes you feel hopeful.
After taking time to fill out all the forms that were provided in advance through ZocDoc, I had to fill out what seemed like an equivalent amount of paperwork, with lots of repeated questions, during my first visit. One more than two occasions since then, the front office staff has given me erroneous information about my insurance and payment information. On my first visit, I did not see the doctor for nearly two hours. I now regularly wait between 40-70 minutes before seeing the doctor.
This doctor was a bit of a disappointment, especially after seeing such high reviews. He insisted on seeing me every month in order to renew my prescription which is A. not a normal practice, and B. costly to anyone who has not yet met their deductible when each visit is out of pocket. Each visit took approximately 10 minutes as well. To me it just felt exemplary of a typical psychologist - they charge you, barely hear you out for 5 minutes, write you a script, and off you go.
one of hte best drs ive ever had. he found out i was misdiagnosed and put me on right meds which made all hte difference in the world for me
I enjoyed that he took the time to speak to me and actually listen to my symptoms. I am looking forward to following up with him.
By far the best experience I've had with a psychiatrist. Very thorough and congenial office with a great staff. Highly recommended!
I was very pleased with Dr Fernandez, I was comfortable with his course of action. I did not feel that awkward feeling when you first meet a doctor
He is a very nice man, easy to talk to.
He's a great doctor. Took his time explaining everything to me so that I had a clear understanding of both my situation and my medication; the same cannot be said after the 10 minute appointments I had with my other doctor. All in all, I would definitely recommend him.
Dr Fernandez was extremely professional and knowledgable and answered all my questions to my satisfaction. His staff is friendly and courteous and you can tell that they truly care about their patients. Parking is easy as they have a garage in their building making it one less thing to worry about. Being an office manager myself I was very impressed and will definitely go back again as well as recommend patients to Dr. Fernandez.
